Which is better ? AAA or msaa x4?
im trying to configure this terribly optimized game, and i dont know which one i should chose... I already get 60+ fps because i set the options to high, instead of very high (BARELY ANY difference in graphics, but adds 40 fps)
if only there was a better way to configure this game...

AAA is a 4A proprietary AA method that is very lean. MSAA is more computationally costly, though looks better. AA methods get rid of jaggies, the space between pixels that can be seen by the naked eye or moving and/or diagonal/angles vertices.

love this guy. sounds like a weirdo but the vids are good for pc newbies. And i sort of knew what they are, but i didnt know the difference between them in this game and which is betetr ;d and this still sort of doesnt answer my question, although i appreciate it greatly

for metro 2033 i use nvidia fxaa it works very well. in some games fxaa can suck but for metro it is great. avoid the ingame msaa and just use fxaa, not sure if you have nvidia or amd. but i can tell you that msaa uses more vram then fxaa, causes more heat on the gpu then fxaa, and costs more fps to run compared to fxaa. for me, fxaa is all i ever use for metro 2033, last light has its own AA inbuilt so i just go with that and its great. and yeah avoid very high preset cause not even 2 titans can hold 60fps with very high, its stuffed.
